As in your earlier post, it is a grass spider, and a male at that - it probably was out looking for a mate when it accidentally wandered indoors. Although technically venomous (like nearly all spiders, it does have venom glands), it is harmless to humans, see the 'sticky' on spider bites at the top of this forum.
