Arahants did not have to follow any precepts intentionally. They have already done what were necessary to become Arahants. The lives they were living were their finals. Everything they did were wholesome without exerting any effort. Their actions were for the sake of doing, i.e to manage their five aggregates so that they could continue to spread the teachings of the Buddha. And in doing so they were spread their mettas and help the creatures of the universe.

Not really, some arahants were murdered and some committed suicide. They're arahants not X-Men...
