LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A man accused of stalking Audrina Patridge had a not guilty plea entered on his behalf Tuesday during a court hearing in which he flashed several obscene gestures.

District Attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison says a public defender entered the plea on 24-year-old Zachary Loring's behalf.

Video shot by celebrity Web site TMZ.com shows Loring trying to rescind the plea and making several obscene gestures before a court commissioner ordered taping to stop.

Loring was arrested Friday outside the home of Patridge, who is one of the stars of MTV's "The Hills." He is accused of violating a restraining order the reality TV star obtained against Loring last year.

Robison says Loring's bail was set at $150,000 and another protective order was issued.
