I've heard "drug" here in the US, and concur that it seems to be used more in the South. I don't believe I've ever heard it in the Northeast.

In the South I've also heard it in a colloquial construct along the lines of: "They done drug the body......"

Thanks, John. That seems to go along with the OED's comment. The OED also says that 'done' with the adverbial sense of 'completely' or 'already' is a Southern expression too.
