He wanted to play with me, and he kept pulling my shirt.

Which of the following sentences is correct?

Don't grab my shirt. I'll fall down.

    No. It's not the present tense after modal verbs, such as 'will'. It's the bare infinitive (infinitive without 'to'). – green_ideas Sep 11 '17 at 1:17

Of course this one is correct...

Don't grab my shirt. I'll fall down.

'fell' indicates that you are already down..:) Which of course doesn't make sense because you are saying that you will fall only if your friend grabs your shirt.
