Police on Friday arrested a man prohibited from contacting Audrina Patridge outside the reality star's Los Angeles home.

Zachary Loring, 24, was arrested around 8 a.m. after was seen knocking on the door of "The Hills" star's home, Los Angeles police Sgt. Kyle Kirkman said.

Officers responded after receiving a 911 call and Loring was arrested without incident, Kirkman said. Loring was not carrying a weapon, he said.

Loring was being held Friday afternoon on $160,000 bail on suspicion of stalking and violating a court order. It was his second arrest outside Patridge's home.

Patridge, 24, obtained a three-year restraining order against Loring in September. She testified at a hearing that she was afraid after Loring repeatedly came to her house and gave her disturbing drawings.

"Audrina is safe and unharmed and she is going about her day as usual," her publicist, Jennifer Shoucair Weaver, said in a statement Friday.

Jail records did not indicate whether Loring has an attorney.
