LOS ANGELES — A judge has granted a three-year restraining order against a man accused of stalking Audrina Patridge.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge David Cunningham III issued the order Wednesday prohibiting any contact by Zachary Loring with "The Hills" star. Patridge sought protection from Loring after he showed up at her house several times. He was arrested on Aug. 30 after Patridge spotted him outside her home.
The 24-year-old actress testified during Wednesday's hearing, calmly recounting how Loring presented her with beer, wine, poetry and drawings.
Patridge said she was afraid of Loring, who was not in court.
A Los Angeles police detective testified that the 24-year-old Northern California man was exhibiting stalking behavior.
