"For someone who was such an integral part of the show, he was not even allowed at the curb. The talent are really physically afraid of him," said an insider at the finale.
"Lauren Conrad had a taser in her bag."
A spokeperson for Conrad refused to comment, but Pratt's scary and erratic behaviour was in full swing the day following the event.
The bearded famewhore hit the beach in Malibu to film lifeguards in Baywatch-style costumes, including a Heidi Montag look-alike.
He Tweeted: "Just shot some amazing film for my micro-budget rated r beach comedy that I am producing TOWER 69: BEACH PATROL featuring 3D boobs."
Former Hills castmates have expressed concern that Pratt has gone off the rails since his split with wife Montag.
