What type of spider is this?

Asking for a friend - she found this big spider in a rental place in southern Arizona. It moved relatively quickly and was about 2 inches. Fear not, no spiders were harmed in the taking of this photo. He (or she) was rapidly relocated to the outside.

Maybe a Giant Crab Spider (Olios giganteus)? The photo's a bit fuzzy but the marker on the abdomen looks similar and it can get that big.

Foxfirefey - I spoke with my friend and she says that looks just about right. Thanks!
