Audrina's Obsessed Fan Arrested at Her Home

2/19/2010 5:27 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Audrina Patridge's Obsessed Fan Arrested The guy Audrina Patridge got a permanent restraining order against last year was arrested this morning after he allegedly showed up to her Los Angeles home.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ someone inside Audrina's house called 911 after Zachary Loring allegedly started pounding on her front door and ringing the doorbell. We're told Audrina was home at the time of the incident.

Loring was in possession of a large knife when he was arrested, according to law enforcement sources.

We're told cops showed up to Audrina's place and arrested Loring -- who was booked for felony stalking and misdemeanor vandalism. Loring is in custody and being held on $160,000 bail.

Back in September, Audrina claimed Loring kept showing up to her house and giving her creepy poems and drawings -- including one of a woman being hanged.

Crazy L.A. Stalkers    

First Ryan Seacrest with his knife-wielding stalker that ignores an restraining order and now this nut stalking some D-List person from "The Hills."

Lock these nuts up for life. A piece of paper does not stop these mentally deranged loons from their thoughts which they are trying to carry-out.

stalkers are scum    

I hope they get tougher laws against stalkers. It's a joke to a lot of you, but they can make an actor's life miserable. What is the point in being a star when stalkers keep you from enjoying it? And the weird thing they would not think they are a stalker. They think they are a 'fan.' Sickos.

OMG- why is this man on the streets? How long before they let him out of jail?? Audrina will end up dead before they start paying attention. Disgusting how the criminals have more rights than victims. Poor girl.

Zach Loring was in the Army.
His myspace is pretty creepy and he even has picture entitled Stalker.

Audrina,
Arm yourself, seriously, this dude is a psychopath. Next time he comes to your house...shoot and kill him where he stands on your front doorstep. I know that you may get in a bit of trouble for doing it if he's not in your home. But, I would hope that a jury/judge would be sympathetic to your horrible situation. If this guy truly had a knife(read conflicting reports), then it's time for you to be proactive about the situation instead of reactive. Bottom line---if psycho boy shows up at your pad again, shoot him.

Seriously?!    

What an AWFUL situation for ANY person to be in (famous or otherwise). These stalkers are seriously dangerous. I would be absolutely TERRIFIED if this ever happened to me. I feel so sorry for anyone having to deal with something like this. She needs to consider what she can do to protect/defend herself because crazies like this don't give up.

Pray For the Beaten Up!    

this is nothing to joke about. there use to be a show called "my sister Sam" starring Pam Dawber(Mark Harmon's wife) and also Mindy in the show "Mork and Mindy"(with robin williams). Well her younger costar Rebecca Schaffer was shot when she opened the door to her stalker John Robert Bardo. It was very sad, she was A NICE girl not even as beautiful as Audrina, but these stalkers ARE sick they see a quality in these young women that they want to own for themselves. It is no joke. this Zack guy is exactly like Bardo.

Y'know a stalker has to either kill or almost kill even a normal person like you or me before anything can really be done about it - it's not a joke!! Celebs obviously have their stalkers but so do many normal people and they don't have the luxury of security guards. The laws really need to change to take account of the fact these people are actually bringing fear and terror into the victims lives - at the moment they'll never be kept in prison long, then they're out to start again, and if they're that obsesses they can always find you!! It's too late when some celeb or normal person like you or me is dead after a stalker is set free to stalk again! They can e-mail you, they can text you, they can ring you, they can follow you and all you're permitted to do is keep a log until the stalker approaches you!! Some sicko's even watch the families of the victim too - I'm glad the guy's in jail and Audrina is safe but anyone who belittles the victim of a stalker is lacking any living brain cell and all emotions! You don't have to like her to be grateful the guy's in jail and she's o.k!!!
