I'd been sitting on the couch six inches away from this little beauty for about half and hour before I noticed him.
I don't think they are poisonous, and he's not a white tail, so your bits don't blow up like a balloon if he bites, but they do have a nasty ability of being able to jump 6ft across a room, and land right next to your head when you are lying on the couch watching TV (which happened to my Dad).
So I grabbed a plastic container and took him outside and let him go.
My apologies to the arachnaphobes.
I added this one for scale. He actually looked bigger in real life, and I'm not particularly scared of spiders, so not exagerating due to being freaked out.
