Audrina Patridge's alleged stalker, Zachary Loring, who was arrested for violating a restraining order by going to Patridge's home, exploded into a profanity laced tirade in court Tuesday, leading the judge to have him removed from the court and order him to undergo two psychological evaluations to determine his competency to stand trial.

Loring, who is currently still in custody and being held on $150,000 bail, appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom to be formally arraigned. Loring attempted to enter a guilty plea to one count of felony stalking and when his attorney objected and the judge sided with the lawyer, Loring exploded in a rage.

Judge William Ryan decided that criminal proceedings against Loring will be temporarily suspended, pending his competency hearing on April 13th.

Loring was arrested on February 19th after going to Patridge's home and pounding on her front door. Patridge was reportedly home at the time. Patridge sought the restraining order against Loring last year after he would repeatedly show up at her house leaving notes and poems for the The Hills star.
