The order was issued by a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge on Wednesday (30Sep09), prohibiting any contact between The Hills star and alleged stalker Zachary Loring.
Loring was arrested on 30 August (09) after Patridge spotted him outside her home, following several earlier attempts to meet the star and present her with beer, wine, poetry and drawings.
The order was granted on behalf of Audrina and her brother, Mark, who lives with her.
Zachary Loring was arrested by police on the actress/model's property at the end of August (09), after Patridge and her brother called for help.
It was the third time Loring had appeared at the star's door in a week - neighbours had spotted him on the property three days before his arrest - when Patridge was not at home. Surveillance camera footage suggested he had spent seven hours outside her home.
A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge issued a restraining order barring Loring from coming within 100 yards of the TV celebrity on Friday (11Sep09).
In court papers , a lawyer for Partridge said 24-year-old Loring identified himself as a fan and handed his client poems and letters he had written to her - and a drawing of a woman being strangled.
The temporary restraining order also prohibits Loring from contacting Patridge's brother Mark.
The Hills star claims she was terrified when Zachory Loring appeared on her front porch last month (Aug09) and handed her a sketch of a woman being strangled among other items.
In legal papers filed on Thursday (10Sep09) in Los Angeles, Patridge insisted Loring is a threat to her life and she wants him kept away from her.
Her brother Mark is also requesting protection from Loring, according to TMZ.com.
As well as the macabre sketch the overzealous fan showed her, Patridge was also left disturbed by one postcard he offered her, postdated 15 September (09), explaining she is "concerned about whether she will be injured or harmed in any way on such date (sic)."
The Hills star claims her neighbours spotted Loring on her property three days later, when she was not at home.
Surveillance tape footage suggested he spent seven hours outside her home, muttering to himself.
He returned on 30 August (09) wearing a suit and tie. The police were called and Loring was arrested.
The Los Angeles Police Department's threat management unit is investigating the case.
