Looks like a Woodlouse Hunter Dysdera crocata. https://bugguide.net/node/view/3388 Common throughout the US, virtually harmless to humans, but great pest control

Almost all spiders will bite given enough provocation, but they mostly prefer to escape. The bite would hurt, but their venom is not considered medically significant. A good rule of thumb is to generally let all spiders be, since they are pretty fragile creatures.
