Supermarket Claims Burton Can't Read His Bills

A fancy grocery store in Los Angeles took a look at their books ... and realized LeVar Burton owed them a bunch of money.

According to a lawsuit filed last month, the "Reading Rainbow" host owes Gelson's a little over $2,000 -- plus attorney's fees.

Burton's had an account with them since 1990, but Gelson's claims he hasn't paid his bill since December 2008.
