A man arrested outside The Hills star Audrina Patridge’s Los Angeles home has pleaded no contest to a stalking charge and will undergo psychiatric evaluation.
Zachary Loring entered the plea in a Los Angeles court on Monday.

He will undergo a 90-day diagnostic evaluation before he’s sentenced on 20 September.

He faces up to two years in a state prison if experts find him to be competent.

Patridge did not appear in court.

Police reports suggest 25-year-old Loring repeatedly visited the star at her home and left her a number of disturbing items, including drawings and poetry.

Loring has been banned from approaching Patridge and her family until 2014.
