A man arrested outside Audrina Patridge's home has pleaded no contest to stalking "The Hills" star and will undergo psychiatric evaluation.Zachary Loring entered the plea Monday in Los Angeles and will undergo a 90-day diagnostic evaluation before being sentenced, according to Deputy District Attorney Wendy Segall.

If the 25-year-old is found competent, he could be sentenced to up to two years in state prison.

The actress did not appear in court. She has previously testified in a civil restraining order hearing that she feared Loring, who police say repeatedly went to the starlet's home and left her numerous items, including some disturbing drawings.

Loring is due back in court on Sept. 20 for sentencing.
